Yield: 8 Servings
Categories: Soups, Potatoes


Garnett PJXG05A
1 3/4 oz Ham base; (2-#40 scoop)
2 qt Chicken stock
8 oz Yellow onion; dice
3 oz Margarine
2 lb Potatoes; bite size
1 1/2 ts Black pepper
2 c Milk
3 oz Flour
3 oz Margarine

Combine chicken stock in sauce pan with ham base. Stir until lumps are
gone. In separate stock pot: melt first margarine measurement; add onion
and sautee until transparent. Add potato bite size pieces and pepper. Add
chicken stock mix and stir until well mixed. Bring mixture to a boil. In
small pan, melt second margarine measure and add flour to create a roux. It
should be light brown in color. When stock comes to a boil, add roux with a
wire whisk. This will cause the soup to start thickening. Return to a boil.
Slowly add the milk. If the soup is too thin, make additional roux and add
it to the soup. If you need to do this, be sure to cook the roux until a
tan color. This will get rid of the raw flour taste. If the soup is too
thick, thin it out with more milk.
